|Sometimes the surface interval is better than the dive|

It was too rough to dive yesterday so we waited for better conditions this morning. We arrived at Golf Ball Reef to find green water with cloudy surface visibility. The bottom was worse. Two feet vis and surge forced Merry to abort the dive after six minutes. I stuck it out for seventy minutes but came away with only two photos.
After surfacing, washing gear and changing clothes the visibility began to improve. Merry decided to finish her tank while I had lunch. While cleaning the deck I spied a floating strand of kelp with some bryozoan on a few of the fronds. I found several nice looking nudibranchs and hoped Merry would surface soon so she could photograph my find.
I finally got tired of waiting and put my freshly scrubbed gear back on. I got just enough images to salvage what would have been a lousy dive.
